. this october surprise has revealed a surprising new alliance. obama/christie. that's right. just listen to how the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a presid
your vote for romney because you're upset at obama, right? n no. i think there is a case to be made against obama. there is also a case to be made for romney. mitt romney, i have to say, among the republicans in the field, i am a democrat, but among the republicans in the primary field, romney was the only one who i thought was in the end, could be a credible alternative to obama. but as we've gotten closer, i think romney is much better than merely a credible alternative. i think his policies are sound. i think he's got a real idea how to create jobs. the other thing i like about him is that there is not a hint of scandal in this man's life. neither in his personal life, nor his career. this is an honest man full of integrity and it will be nice to have that in the white house. >> gretchen: when i interviewed hi and ann together three years ago issues they said to me then, you will never read about us in the tabloids, ever. they said it am fatticcally. listen to ryan and romney as they seem to be talking about hope and change. imagine that. >> this is a turfing point for america th

grapevine. civil rights icon who gave benediction at president obama inauguration says he believes all white people are going tohill. 91-year-old reverend joseph laurie told a group of obama supporters in georgia he is frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out of the election. monroe county reporter writes "laurie said when he was a young militant he used to say all white folks were going to hell. then he mellowed and just said most of them were. now he said he is back to where he was." laurie attacked those black georgians who did not vote in the 2008 election. and criticized the national anthem as too militaristic. lowery is expected to give a news conference on the topic on friday. >>> who women in dominican republic claim new jersey democratic senator menendez paid them for sex. they told the "daily caller" senator agreed to pay them $500 apiece and only paid them $100. menendez tells geraldo rivera that story is false, absolutely false and contrived. finally, if you have noticed, a lot more jokes about romney than president obama on late night tv, now there are numbers
tougher. and it's all about laerpd right now. and i hope that president obama and chris christie really by display giving an example to lawmakers who said that they were going to washington to work on behalf of constituents, because i think that we are seeing some real leadership right now, and i think that they can have an impact. and i think it would be good for constituents around the country now to ask the questions of those who are running for office, can you do what those two guys are doing? get your cell phones out? i want to know what you think. tonight's question. do you approve of the federal government's response following hurricane sandy? text "a" for yes, "b" for no to 622639. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight, new jersey senator robert menendez. he, of course, was with president obama and governor chris christie today. senator, great to have you with us. you were right in the middle of all of those discussions today and getting up close as to what is happening. i understand that you're going
it is mostly good news for president obama. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%, but more jobs were added than expected, 171,000 to be precise. stock futures went up right after the numbers came out. later oil prices took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the
has never seen mr. obama more accelerated, adding right now the stump speech is coming from the president's loins. bret? >> bret: from his loins? okay. ed, thank you. >> yes. >> bret: okay. stocks ended the week on a down note. the dow lost 139.5. the s&p 500 dropped 13. the nasdaq fell 38. mitt romney has begun his final push hitting as many of the major tossup states as possible. chief political correspondent carl cameron is along for the ride with the romney campaign. >> in wisconsin, four days before the election, mitt romney made his official closing argument of the campaign. >> if you believe america should be in a better course, if you are tired of being tired. then i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one. >> romney cast race as the choice for the future on what he calls the president's four-year record of failure. >> candidate obama promised change. but he couldn't deliver it. i promised change but i have a record of achieving it. >> romney's final 96-hour sprint takes him to new hampshire, colorado. sunday to
] and you got it right, that the obama rallies rallies are captag four more years. you're chanting three more days. we're going to have to change that chant tomorrow. we'll come up with something, i'm sure. we are so grateful to you and to the people across this country for all that you've given to the campaign of yourselves, of your time, your talent, your energy, your money, and this is not just about paul ryan and me and it's really about america and the future we leave our children. [ cheers and applause ] we thank you and we ask you to stay with it all the way to victory on tuesday night. all right? [ cheers and applause ] four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so much for us, but he's fallen so very short. he promised to be a post-partisan president. remember that? but he became the most partisan. blaming, attacking, and dividing. he was going to focus on creating jobs, instead he focused on obamacare and that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut federal deficit in half. instead he doubled it. he said he was going to cut the unemployment rate to 5.2% by now. we learned
think, a center right campus, no question. their viewers were incredibly nuanced about the economy. there were romney supporters, obama supporters. the number-one issue was the economy with a special focus on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as
voted for barack obama last time and get them to come out and vote for us this time. >> all right. so maybe mitt romney is also taking a two prong way, he's for early voting, too, or maybe he has a bit of romnesia about what his closing strategy is supposed to be. whatever the case, the two strategies that they've chosen tells us this. president obama has eight days to win this election. mitt romney has nine. because he's betting on a big turn out on election day. listen, romney may be on to something given that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final day
university of michigan and former chief economist at the obama labor department, and mom to the 3-week-old oliver, congratulations, that's really awesome. all right, it has been five days since sandy came ashore on the east coast as a post-tropical cyclone, the exact location of landfall didn't much matter because it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practica
it will be at least ten days before they're able to restock. diane? >> all right, alex, thank you. >>> and, now, the race for the white house. a note about the storm, vote egg and today, president obama and governor romney back out making their case to voters, as the clock ticks down. five days until americans go to the polls, your voice, your vote. and tonight, our brand new abc news/"washington post" poll shows this. the president with a one-point edge. he also got a big helpful endorsement today and i want to bring in "good morning america" co-anchor, anchor of "this week," george stephanopoulos. >> reporter: that's right. mayor michael bloomberg had criticized president obama in the past, said he was not going to endorse, today, he said he's endorsing the president because he believes he's best positioned to lead on the issue of climate change, which the mayor believes had an impact on this hurricane. that comes on top of that praise from governor chris christie, the republican governor of new jersey yesterday and the poll you cited shows that nearly 8 out of 10 americans think the presiden

christie's response here. he has been praising president obama. something we typically don't hear. >> right. and governor christy is saying this is a bipartisan issue. this is not about politics. because take a look. we're here on a main street in atlantic city. several blocks from the waterfront of this bayside community and you can see a kayak was washed ashore because of the storm. and this is only a little bit of the damage we've been seeing. take a look at this. this is a small houseboat that was torn from the pier. you see the pilings it was attached to, and it was just swept into the middle of this intersection here on the street. and this is the type of damage and destruction, zoraida, that the president will see firsthand when he comes here later this afternoon to tour this damage. he will talk to first responders and victims of the storm, and he spent three days off the campaign trail, because of the storm, and now he has to walk a fine line of anything as president, to console families who have felt the impact of the storm, while making it not look like merely a photo-op. as you
down south. >> brian: president obama set to tour the damage. the president's request to visit new york city denied. "fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ >> gretchen: good morning, we start with an extreme weather alert. devastation sandy has left behind unimaginable and cities must begin the grueling recovery . the super storm killed 55 men, women and children and first responders. estimates of the physical damage are at 20 billion dollars and the recover will have to wait. eight million people are in the dark and aren't expected to get power back for weeks. hardest hit is new jersey, new york and pennsylvania. meanwhile, the president of the united states asked mayor bloomburg, i would like to take a look at all of the damage and mayor bloomburg had a press conference and said we are flattered by the fact that the president of the united states would like to come and visit us, but not right now and we are really busy and the first responders need to pay to exeem put things back in order. it would be great if the president goes to new jersey and the president will tour the devastati
and toledo, will go very heavily for president obama. cincinnati, where i am sitting right now, will go heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign, campaign very heavily in central ohio, in and around columbus. we'll see president obama go there on friday. that's the area that could make up the difference come election night. >> okay. james peterson, last thought here. there is a pattern now of real dishonesty on the part of the romney campaign ads. they're out there saying that romney's been accused of outlawing birth control, contraception. nobody's ever accused him of that. they've said that he's not supporting the right of women to have it covered in their health plans. why are they putting out these desperate ads, like jeeps going to china and women are under attack for buying birth control pills. it's an absurdity. who would be so uninformed to believe these ads? >> chris, that's a different question. there are such a thing as uninformed voters and that's fine, that's part of
, romney could have done this earlier. he could have maybe forced obama and the campaign to redirect its funds to states where they didn't want to have to play. just on the -- just to sort of deplete resources, if not to actually win votes. >> that's right. the 50 state strategy. you could have rolled that out. you could have tried to get him to play everywhere, spread him thinner and they didn't do it. it's too late to be doing that in any significant way. they might hit a few key markets with ads like in toledo to try to swing a little chunk of the state that they actually think they have a shot in but beyond that the real question now, it's going to come down to the ground game and what everyone has been saying all along is that democrats have a far better ground game in place and have had far more offices in place for longer and going to be able to turn out their votes better than the republicans are and we're going to see if that's true. >> rana, how much do you think sandy and the response by the white house affects swing voters. different thing if you're in new york and the trista
in florida. florida could be in the obama victory column and we're counting on it. >> all right. stephanie cutter, rich yesterday said florida double digits, you say florida could win. two very different visions from the campaigns. stephanie, we'll be talking to you. thank you. >> thanks, chuck. >>> the markets are heading into the second full day of trading this week. becky quick is here, market rundown. now we're going to start getting the normal stuff, weekly jobless claims. >> we're getting our groove back. >> what is going on with ford? >> ford just came out and said that the ceo is going to stick around at least through 2014 and that puts to bed some rumors, expectations that he may be stepping down. he says he wants to stay with us and others say he wants to fix the problems in europe. so that's going to be higher. it's just opening right now but it's going to be higher on that. mark fields was promoted. and the other thing you mentioned is the jobs numbers and, chuck, we are getting back to the point where we're getting back to the normal numbers. today we have the adp numbers that
deal . no one in their right mind would say i am endorsing president obama because of a climate change stance. that is crazy town. >> steve: we sound frustrate we are. there are reports here in new york city people don't have food they are dumpster dive looters and people using blackberries and iphones as flash lights and people are stealing them from them it is extraordinary situation . >> gretchen: a lot like hurricane katrina. they saw all of the dead bodies afterwards. >> steve: if this was a republican president do you think that the main stream media would handle it differently? the president's photop in new jersey is now in las vegas. >> eric: i love chris christy and he did victory laps with president obama and for fema, but where is fema? i am in favor of letting the states handle all of these things. but if you are going to do victory laps and say fema is the greatest institution in the last four or five years, they better be here. i haven't seen anything. not a thing. it is a disaster over there. >> gretchen: we have much to discuss this morning! in the meantime a fight for
. hillary clinton and president obama come out and try to set the record straight. right now and not spin everything. we don't -- we don't want the details. we just want answers and want accountability and want people to resign if they have to. >> brian: scott, two quick points to get to in a minute. real quick, when you hear the secretary of defense say i didn't want to put my guys into harm's way in uncertain situation, you are a navy seal. don't you always go into uncertain situations? >> if i got the call right now, right now to go to libya or anywhere else to help folks and they needed me, i would be there right now. every single military member, cia folks, state department guys, security, anybody would step up to the plate and run out there in harm's way to save fell will he americans. there is no doubt about it. >> brian: you think he was disingenuous when he said that because you and delta force and guys like you do this all the time? >> folks like us and that are out there right now. that's what we do. that's what we would do. i think it was a misleading statement at best. >> bri
needed right now in washington that people think is broken. and president obama who has glossy new brochure, when you look inside it is more of the same. bill: when you think about what the obama team did in 2008, i mean do you have to, do you have to go well beyond the numbers of 2004? and because when you talk about these voters who voted for the president four years ago and they have been disillusioned and perhaps not supporting him now, can you point to examples or concrete evidence where the obama supporters of 2008 have left him now? >> i can and it's the early voting numbers that are coming in. looks like we are overperforming in all the early voting and democrats are underperforming as compared to 2008. and we expected early voting to go more towards democrats because that is what happened in 2008. democrats like to vote early. republicans like to vote on election day. despite that we've been able to increase our numbers significantly and their numbers are down. so i think there is evidence there is less enthusiasm on their side. some of these obama supporters last time hav
